The fascination of trail running: pushing your body to the limit – and beyond. That said, trail running isn’t necessarily about performance – on the contrary, it’s more about clearing your head, being out in the fresh air and enjoying nature on your own or with friends. It doesn’t take much. A beautiful landscape (of which there’s an abundance here), appropriate footwear, maybe a running backpack – and poles, because the going can be very steep. Talking of vertical metres: the tours usually start at low altitude (alt. 300 m or so), which makes them ideal for runners keen on ascents as well as those who prefer to avoid too many ups and downs.
